Brother ScanNCut - Creating Layered Tags

Brother ScanNCut SDX125 Tips & Tricks – Creating Layered Tags, Welding & Background Scanning

By PaperedChef, December 12, 2019

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create layered tags. The Let it Snow specialty designer series paper by Stampin’ Up! is featured in this tutorial. It is in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. The skills you will learn are Background Scanning, Layering and Welding. You will also used editing features such as Selecting, Grouping and Aligning objects. We will work with a built in tag pattern and the Let it Snow dsp. We start by creating a tag which is 2.25″ inches wide and then we scan in the background so that the tag can be placed over the dsp in the exact spot where we want it cut. Then, I demonstrate how to create a layer or an offset. We delete the original tag shape and cut out the layer in Blueberry Bushel card stock, a coordinating color. That is how to create a layered tag and it is also one way you can make the hole of a tag smaller. Next, I share a technique which can be done on other models of ScanNCut machines as well as inside of Canvas Workspace software. In order to get rid to the big hole in the tag, I shared how to weld shapes together. Then, we created a smaller hole for the tag and aligned it Vertically. I shared several examples of tags I created using the layering technique and referred to a related video (listed below) where you can learn more tag making techniques.
